Dogs in workshops

I noticed from watching American Hotrod and reading up on other people's own build that there is usually a dog in their workshop. I wonder why workshop owners let their dog's loose around a workshop which can be hazardous at best of times. Just a thought as it keeps cropping up as I read some project/workshop build.

We do not have a dog in our shop. But, I would not be against the idea.

but usually said dog is well behaved and knows how to stay out of trouble. of course it is still dangerous, but it is not dissimilar to having dogs on a farm. My dog likes to hang around whenever I'm doing anything in the garage, but she is a little unintelligent and tends to find the biggest pile of dirt to lie in.

If only we can train dogs to rebuild engines or do panel beating. Having owned a dog before they do make good company, but they can make a helluva mess.

That's great an idea. Less jobs for people, so everybody can be on permanent holidays. Just joking.

Anyway I know two places - agency office and museum - where dogs are walking, playing, barking etc. around customers.
